Industrial sensors are the fundamental devices in automation and the perceptual basis of intelligent manufacturing. Akusense aims to provide one-stop intelligent sensor solutions for customers in the industrial field.
Recently, Akusense (Chinese: 志奋领科技), an industrial smart sensor solution provider, announced the completion of Series A+ worth nearly tens of millions of USD. This funding round was led by Shunwei Capital (Chinese: 顺为资本), with participation from Yiheda (Chinese：怡合达).
